Crazy four months!

I've been out since Oct! I have a lot to catch up on. The last few months have been crazy. I'm back on track to keep working on my truck. I've missed out some parts but I'll get back to work on finding what I need. Here are two pictures for 2012. I had to boost it since the battery was dead. I had not moved the truck in almost two months. It felt great giving it a good wash.

I had some help installing new NGK spark plugs. One had a tip screw off. The new spark plugs made a huge difference. The old ones had ~30K miles on them. The #6 was a huge PIA. The header completely blocks the plug. We had to reach it from underneath. These angle plug heads are not built for quick spark plug changes. I took the truck on a 200 mile parts run from Austin to San Antonio the next day. Wow, it's back were it should be on milage ~18 MPG. It burns the tires off from a dead start.
